Every day in my life is a struggle.
Trying to break free,
Get away from the
Intimidating looks and menacing faces.
In middle school I was told
I would never be beautiful,
That I was just another freak.
I let those words shape me.
Now the school halls scare me.
When I'm around people
I put my guard up, staying quiet because
I'm afraid to let others know me.
All around me people succeed,
And I can't even open up.
Afraid of what they might say about me.
I wish I was stronger.
Now I try to just shut it out,
But I'm broken.
I want to hide it but
How do you hide something so big
Behind a girl so small?
